Getting Started with Dragonchain

Get started with a Dragonchain business node; no blockchain experience necessary! If you want a quick introduction to the Dragonchain APIs you can read our Quick Start section.

In this guide you will learn how to create your Dragonchain business node, start creating transactions and see their cryptographic proof be packaged into blocks. You will also learn about smart contracts, interchain and Dragon Net. Learning these concepts will give you a solid foundation to begin creating an application around a blockchain using Dragonchain technology.
